I second @nickety's suggestion of using dark berries to "mask" the green. You could also try adding cocoa powder, which would give it a slight chocolatey taste, and I believe contains antioxidants as well!

The best pie I've ever had was this blueberry buttermilk pie from a restaurant in the Boston area. I was lucky enough to get the recipe from the pastry chef and made it in mini form: http://the-cooking-of-joy.blogspot.com/2014/05/blueberry-buttermilk-mini-pies.html

I went to school in Ithaca, NY where one of the only things to do after midnight was go to Wegmans. When I moved to Princeton to start grad school and realized there was a Wegmans there, I almost burst into tears because I knew it was a sign from God that I was where I was supposed to be. Wegmans is like the mecca of supermarkets. I'm so glad they're hear in the Boston area now!

Any time I get tomatoes in my CSA, I usually make tomatoes and eggs over rice. It's pretty much the only dish I know how to make without using a recipe.

On the weekends, I usually take the time to make a couple balls of pizza dough and throw them in the freezer. Then during the week, I'll defrost the dough in the fridge the night before, and I can crank out a hot pizza in about 10 minutes (not including preheating time). One of my favorite ways to use up the kale from my CSA box is this crispy kale pizza.

I third the overnight oats! My favorite combo right now is freeze-dried strawberries, shredded coconut, sliced almonds, chia seeds, and vanilla soymilk with Trader Joe's quick cook steel cut oats: http://the-cooking-of-joy.blogspot.com/2014/06/overnight-oats-in-jar.html

I'm in the same boat; I'm not really a big fan of veggies either. That said, my go to recipe for Swiss chard is this caramelized onion and Swiss chard quiche, and my go to recipe for kale is this crispy kale pizza.

When the nights got really cold during college, I used to crave fresh, salty French fries and hot chocolate from the hot truck outside my dorm, so I totally understand this pairing. =)
